Gretchen Wilso's New Christmas Song is Coming

"I Want A Hippopotamus For Christmas" Returns to Radio Playlists
(Nashville, Tennessee...) -- December 2, 2010 -- Gretchen Wilson, who already proudly displays one Grammy on her mantle, received two nods for her simple, yet emotion-charged cut "I'd Love To Be Your Last" from her I Got Your Country Right Here album. She received a nomination in the "Best Female Country Vocal Performance" category, and Grammy voters nominated the song, written by Rivers Rutherford, Sam Tate and Annie Tate, for "Best Country Song."
"This is a beautiful love song, just so beautifully written," said Gretchen. "It's the kind of song that almost makes you cry every time you hear it. I'm really excited about the nominations and very thankful to Rivers, Annie and Sam for writing such an amazing song."
Gretchen's decision to include "I'd Love To Be Your Last," which was recorded with only a guitar and cello, was kind of an afterthought near the end of the recording process. "It was something that I didn't really decide to put on the record until the very last minute," she said. "It's the last track on the record and I'm really glad we put it on there."
The Redneck Woman has gone country Christmas again with her remake of the holiday classic "I Want A Hippopotamus For Christmas." Originally recorded by 10-year-old Gayla Peevey in 1953, Gretchen recorded the lighthearted song last year with a very special group of vocalists. Several children from her daughter Grace's school accompanied her on the track.
The playful song is already showing up on radio playlists. KSJ/St. Louis PD Mark Anderson told Country Aircheck: "'I Want a Hippopotamus For Christmas' gets huge request activity. Fortunately, hometown fave Gretchen Wilson has a great version that we've added to cover that audience desire."
Speaking of Christmas, Gretchen's I Got Your Country Right Here Deluxe Edition is on sale for just $40.00 atwww.RedneckRecordsStore.comThe special package includes the cd, a 32-page full-color photo book, a poster size replica of the U.S. Constitution, and a 3' x 5' "I Got Your Country Right Here" flag all in a collector's box. Fans ordering the Deluxe Edition by December 17, 2010 will have it autographed by Gretchen.
Gretchen will be touring this coming weekend and will have to find out on television if her "Work Hard, Play Harder" music video will take home a trophy on the inaugural American Country Awards broadcast live on FOX Television on Monday, December 6.

Text messages and tweets by three fugitive siblings who shot at a police officer and robbed a bank reveal a dangerous mindset and a firm bond between the siblings, "We've certainly seen their mindset when...

But these additional texts and tweets have given us additional insight," FBI Special Agent Stephen Emmett told "Good Morning America" today. " We are concerned and feel that they are going to continue and cause problems to say the least for law enforcement." Ryan Dougherty, 21; his sister Lee Grace E.
